    Former Employee - Regional Communication and Advocacy Manager
    Former Employee - Regional Communication and Advocacy Manager

    Pros

    Many, majority of people are passionate and professional idealists working for the better world. People truly believe in the mandate and this makes the working environment inspirational and informal. Working directly with the national societies, with the volunteers and with the communities brings flesh to the desk job.

    Cons

    There are many so called development cowboys that rule the game - the recruitment, the assignments and the procedures - of the organisation. In certain delegations and national societies there are people working with their own personal, financial or political interests in mind. This causes delay or direct standstill of projects and work, complicates things and leads to people not feeling motivated or empowered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should be able to lead with both technical skills and managing people, empowering them, trusting them and having the courage to do things differently. The organisation needs to look around, shake the old patterns of working and re-invent itself.

    Pros

    Diverse colleagues from all international countries in the workplace. I think at one time I counted 19 nationalities from 25 people.

    Lots of travel on missions around the region. Traveling itself can be tedious, but the upside is all the cool people and places and food you get to experience.
